London, United Kingdom
Do you like big, bombastic rock and dream pop? Touring to promote their second album, My Mirror / Your Target, buzzing London septet REVERE make their Edinburgh debut for Limbo this Saturday night!
They have been compared to bands such as Arcade Fire, Muse, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Sigur Ros and Godspeed You Black Emperor and would also appeal to fans of The National, Tindersticks, The Boxer Rebellion, Broken Social Scene, British Sea Power, Foals, Maccabees, Zulu Winter, Bastille and Mogwai...
Following tour dates at festivals such as Latitude, Field Day, Womad, Larmer Tree, Standon Calling, Mosely Folk, The Great Escape, Camden Crawl or Liverpool Soundcity, the band’s swelling fanbase currently includes DJs Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 2 / 6Music) as well as critics at The Sunday Times, The Times, Q Magazine, The Telegraph and The Fly.
Local support comes from THE TIDE INSIDE, who wowed Limbo when they appeared last June, and dream pop act COLLAR UP, who are launching their own second album, Ghosts (released via local label Permwhale Recordings on Monday 13th), and already causing a stir of their own. Their headline gig at the Wee Red Bar was packed last month, they raised the roof at Glasgow's 13th Note a fortnight back and the critical acclaim is also starting to mount, with The Scotsman, The List, The Skinny and the Daily Record all giving the album a resounding thumbs up, Album of The Week from The Tidal Wave Of Indifference blog yesterday and more still to come...
CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR REVERE
"a great live reputation, their cacophonous multi-layered sound along with stunning live visuals setting them apart” (Q Magazine)
“Revere […] combine the fiery melodrama of Muse with the rousing chamber-pop of Arcade Fire. They could, and should, be huge” (STEPHEN DALTON, THE TIMES)
“An extraordinary widescreen technicolor epic of a song…a stunning single by a stunning band…” (TOM ROBINSON, BBC6)
“Epic widescreen melancholia” (NEIL McCORMICK, TELEGRAPH)
“UK’s answer to Arcade Fire, it seems the troupe are embracing the tag. From their early days of uber-theatrical, classic sounding ballads to tonight’s epic offering, Revere have come a long way and they seem very comfortable in their new skin. Frontman Stephen Ellis employs profound Interpol/Editors-esque vocals to compliment the massive sound forged by the remaining seven members of the band.” (THE FLY)
“The diverse line-up brings with it a diversity of influences – including the cinematic scores of Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone; the soaring vocals and genre-tripping of Jeff Buckley; the brooding soundscapes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and the dark folk of Nick Cave. REVERE combine these influences with fleeting elements of gypsy songs, post-rock, klezmer, film scores and gospel to produce cohesive, multi-layered and dramatic music which moves from tiny, music-box openings to cacophonous walls of sound. The result is a sound often compared to instrumental alchemists like Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire and Beirut. (CHANNEL 5)
“How you and I got this far without them in our lives I’ll never know; Triumphant, raucous and spine-tingling” (FORFOLKSAKE)
“Revere…so stirring that they could have roused an army of hippies to war!” (POLARI MAGAZINE)
“The most underrated band in Britain at the moment, everything they produce is of the highest quality” (THE BEAT SURRENDER)
